To Get Hired as a Food Forager You Must Get Certified
Step 1: Interest in Good Food and Nature
In today's world, the food production industries have become corrupt. We are producing food in ways that cause serious harm to our planet and the pesticides plus synthetic fertilizer is causing harm to humans and other animals. If you want to know where your food comes from then you may as well gather it yourself, besides you are getting paid to do it!
Step 2: Gain Experience in Foraging and Tree Care
Sure, anyone can just go out and look for trees that have edible fruit. We believe that it takes proper education to identify trees and plants, work with property owners to get the story of the place and permission to forage, take only what is needed and leave some for rest and what it takes to make sure your trees and plants regenerate even more of a yield next year without causing any harm to the tree or the immediate environment..
Step 3: Receive Certificate and Get to Work!
You've gone on an expedition or two, learned what you need to know and are ready to get paid to work with your community to be stewards of the local trees and plant life while you mindfully harvest foraged foods around your neighborhood. Start out earning $20/hr in food value or Community Reserve credits.
